Corey Kluber and Gio Urshela continued their rehabs as they close in on a return to the Bronx. Elsewhere, Hudson Valley put together another exciting comeback – all for naught – and Tampa dealt with more issues courtesy of Mother Nature.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (56-37): A pair of key cogs in the Yankees’ resurgence over the last month came through for Scranton in a 5-2 defeat of the IronPigs.

  • Star of the Game: Luis Gil – 6.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 95 pitches (55 strikes). Gil has been a godsend for the Yankees lately and being sent down in spite of his performance didn’t seem to shake his confidence
  • Hitting Star of the Game: Greg Allen – 2-for-4, 1 home run (3), 2 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base. Allen went deep in the third to vault Scranton into the lead
  • Estevan Florial: 1-for-3, 2 runs scored, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts
  • Sócrates Brito: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 1 stolen base
  • Trey Amburgey: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts
  • Max Burt: 1-for-4, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout
  • Brooks Kriske: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 21 pitches (14 strikes)
  • Sal Romano: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 16 pitches (11 strikes). Romano recorded his second save

Somerset Patriots (57-39): Oswaldo Cabrera and Josh Breaux went back-to-back in a big first inning to propel Somerset to an easy series-opening 6-2 win over Akron.

  • Star of the Game: Oswaldo Cabrera – 2-for-5, 1 home run (16), 3 RBI, 2 runs scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base. Cabrera stuffed the stat sheet and moved into a tie for eighth in Double-A Northeast in home runs
  • Gio Urshela: 1-for-4, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout. Urshela was plunked in the leg in the eighth inning, but stayed in the game
  • Josh Breaux: 3-for-4, 1 home run (3), 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 run scored. Breaux came a triple shy of the cycle and lifted his Somerset OPS over .800
  • Dermis Garcia: 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 run scored, 1 strikeout, 1 stolen base
  • Corey Kluber: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 60 pitches (39 strikes). Kluber retired seven in a row at one point. It remains to be seen whether his rehab will continue or whether his next stop is New York
  • Michael Gomez: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 30 pitches (19 strikes). Gomez moved his record to 2-1
  • Barrett Loseke: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 16 pitches (13 strikes)
  • Nick Ernst: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 19 pitches (12 strikes)

  • Anthony Volpe: 1-for-3, 1 double, 1 run scored, 2 walks, 1 strikeout
  • Elijah Dunham: 1-for-5, 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 strikeout. Dunham drove in the tying run in the top of the ninth
  • Anderson Munoz: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 73 pitches (47 strikes)

  • Carlos Espinal: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 2 K, 13 pitches (9 strikes). Espinal surrendered the walk-off blast

Tampa Tarpons (64-29): Heavy rains in Clearwater left a soggy field and led to the postponement of the matchup between the Tarpons and Threshers. It’ll be made up on Friday.

FCL Yankees (24-11): The Yanks won a hard-fought contest over Tigers West, 5-3.

  • Star of the Game: Yorlin Calderon – 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K. Calderon provided some needed stability in relief
